WEEK #5: MATTHEW CHAPTER 21-25


Chapter 21

1. Because worship was being hindered by corrupt practices, Jesus cleared the temple (vs.12-13). What practices might be hindering your worship and prayer life and need to be overturned?

1. Jesus warns us about hypocrisy in vs. 1-3. In what ways might your walk not align with your talk?

Chapter 24

1. In vs. 3-14, Jesus teaches about the end of the age and the signs of His return. He warns that many will be lead astray and their love will grow cold. What are you doing to insure you are following God’s truth and loving God more and more?


2. Vs. 42-44 calls us to be ready for His return. How would you live differently today if you knew Jesus was returning tomorrow?


Chapter 25

1. Vs.21 are the words every Christ-follower hopes to hear. “Well done, good and faithful servant…” Do you sense God’s affirmation of your daily living? How might God be calling you to live differently?


2. Vs. 34-40 calls us to serve God in serving others. How can you better meet the needs that Jesus names in this passage?


WEEK #6:MATTHEW CHAPTER 26-28; MARK CHAPTERS 1-2


Chapter 26

1. The woman in vs.7 gave generously to Jesus. On the other hand, Judas betrays Jesus 30 pieces of silver (vs.15). When, like the woman, have you given generously? When, like Judas, have your betrayed your faith?


2. On the night of His betrayal and arrest, Jesus went with His disciples to Gethsemane to pray (vs.36), but they fell asleep (vs.40). When have you been most attentive in prayer? When have you been negligent?

2. In vs. 46, Jesus cries out the first line of Psalm 22: “My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?”. When have you felt like God has forsaken you? Do you believe God forsook Jesus? Do you believe God has ever forsaken you?


Chapter 28

1. Both the angel and Jesus told the women to “go and tell” (vs. 5-10). In what ways have you been obedient o this call?


2. The religious leaders attempted to cover up Jesus’ resurrection (vs.11-15). Why is it important for some to deny Christ? Why is it important that you believe?


3. For centuries, Christ-followers have called vs.18-20 “The Great Commission:” “…Go and make disciples…” How are you involved in helping others know Jesus and grow in their faith?


Mark—The Second of the Four Gospels. The writer, John Mark wrote to Gentiles, especially to those in Rome. His fast-paced narrative is the Gospel of action, and focuses on the miracles of Jesus and the cross. As a teen Mark placed his faith in Christ. He later traveled with the Apostle Paul, and the Apostle Peter was Mark’s mentor and an eye-witness to all Mark recounts. Mark stresses the servanthood and the humanity of the Son of God. Mark proclaims the great power of Christ and His cross.


Chapter 1

1. In vs.16-20, Jesus calls His first disciples and they follow Him immediately. How have you sensed Jesus calling you? How will you respond with your daily living today?
